Question 12.5" wide tires on 8" wide rim???

Hey guys, can you (eh... is it safe to) run a 12.5" wide tire (33x12.5x15 Duratracs) on a 8" (15x8 Granite Alloy GA9) rim? I've seen some people with it, but it just seems scary. Opinions? Fast would be nice, I'm planning on ordering them tonight.

Scary? All that would happen is the tire will wear in the center more.

33x12.50 on 15x8 is what I'm running. I run my tires at lower PSI to compensate for the arch created by the 8" wheels. No problems!
